Recommended Posts

So i work for Sprint as a Retail Consultant. And wanted to see everyone thoughts on what the next "Flagship" phone might be. Every time Sprint launches a "Flagship" Device a rep in every corporate store is chosen to be the advocate for the new device about a month before it launches. For example i was told about a month ago that I would be the Advocate for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. Sprint never has an advocate for a device that is nothing to new or exciting. Well today at work we got word from Sprint that our store is to choose an advocate for a new device that will be coming real soon. Only problem is they didn't say for what device. This never happens. so what is it going to be? thoughts?

Are you sure its a phone? Could it be a tablet, data card, mobile hotspot. or something like that?

The new Nokia phones are causing quite a stir. Maybe one of those.

 

edit: I'm thinking this because we haven't seen a lot of development or announcement buzz around a new phone. From this I'm figuring it's already a phone that's sort of done. Leads me to Galaxy SIII (Which I doubt since it would cut the life of the nexus dramatically short) or a Lumia device which supports LTE and the Windows Phone Developers Summit is on June 20th may hold some surprises.

 

edit 2: Also there have been mystery benchmarks showing up on WP and I haven't heard of anything new on Android. Direct competition to the Evo and Nexus seems a little crazy right now.

To me, since it's not on the LTE lab reports, it would have to be either a non LTE device or a major blockbuster device that may not go through the labs.

 

Although, it may be the one shown in the Lab schedule for August/Sept release. They may just be ramping up early. Heck, they may even be releasing early. The EVO LTE is out three weeks early from the development schedule.

It has been quite a few years since Sprint has had a Nokia device and Nokia has been struggling in the US in recent years. So that would be a nice addition. But when was the last time Nokia was carried by a major CDMA carrier?

 

Sadly I think it will more likely be something from someone like ZTE and will end up a phone the like Echo. But hears to the hopes of something new and better and waiting until later on the GS3.

So 2 of the requirements for the advocate are that they must be familiar with android and they can not take any time off in June. They are also asking us to submit our t shirt sizes for the shirts we will wear on launch day of this device.

LG Eclipse may be it. My only thoughts on this are that LG has never done an Advocate device however based on the specs for it i could see it being the first. My guess on the mystery phone was for it to be the Galaxy Note/Journal. thoughts?

What is the source of this information?

 

 

 

Nothing is Official from from sprint yet. However based on the fact that they have had the Corporate stores select an advocate for a new up and coming device. and stated that the one chosen could not take any Payed Time Off in June. plus this article. http://insidesprintnow.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/galaxy-s3/ leads me to believe it will be here this month or beginning of July.

I just don't know if I would go with Samsung again after getting out of my epic. Their hardware just seems half baked and their flaky radios. Never liked them even in the flip phone days. I always called them samsuck.

 

Curious to see if they get this one right. It sure looks cool with all those features including the 2gb of RAM. Wow.

I never noticed much of a difference between my E4GT and the OG EVO radios in performance. And I'm not seeing much difference between the E4GT and EVO LTE so far.

 

I never used the OG Epic before though.

Very erratic signal indicator. Would cycle to zero bars for no reason and stay there for a bit. Sometimes it would stall your data connection. The PCS roaming bug was a huge issue as well. Roaming took a while to come back and forth. If you looked in the debug screen you would notice the radio would report the signal in increments of 7. Sometimes I would have cycle the radio after going through a no coverage area like an elevator. Otherwise the radio would be hung up.

 

Even after only having the new EVO for a couple of days I remember the solid radio of the HTC from my TP2 days.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
